Phenomenology in the Light of Analytic Philosophy

Study of writings of Husserl and the early phenomenologists to give an exposition of the phenomenological method which will take into account the objections raised by the Agno-American "analytic" philosophies. ABSTRACT: Study in depth of published and unpublished writings of Husserl and the early phenomenologists in order to give an exposition of the phenomenological method which will take into account the objections raised by the Anglo-American "analytic" philosophies (logical empiricism and ordinary-language philosophy). Study deals with major philosophical concern of the century: the relation of meaning to language, on the one hand, and to expression on the other. Emphasis not on existential interpretations of Husserl but on his theory of meaning. Severe breakdown of communications between phenomonology and the analytic philosophies, the two major trends in contemporary philosophy. Man-centered phenomenology and existentialist thought dominant in humanities, art and religion while analytic approach effective in philosophy of science. Reflects gap between "two cultures." Common features often overlooked; disgreements often based more on ignorance or misinterpretation of phenomenology than on substantive issues. Fund for PI's salary; travel to Husserl Archives in Lourvain, Belgium, to the Phenomenological Conference in Munich, and to Oxford and Cologne for consultations.
